If you have a green card or nonimmigrant visa, you can legally stay in the United States. However, you must abide by the set immigration rules. Violation of some immigration laws may not necessarily result in deportation. For instance, if found guilty of marriage fraud, you may have to pay hefty fines or even face jail time. However, if you violate more serious immigration laws, you could lose your resident status.
Immigration laws are constantly changing and the changes can be difficult to keep up with. I was working with a few members of my church to help bring a family from overseas to the States. Three of their five kids had fallen ill and need the medical attention that they cannot get in their home country. We had to hire an immigration attorney to help us wade through all of the paperwork associated with this course of action. If you are experiencing something similar, go through our site. Here, you will find the tips and information that our attorney provided us to help this family get the help they need.
